Hand-Formable Low PIM Cable Jumper Patch Assemblies from Pasternack

Low PIM Cable Assemblies Utilizing a Hand Formable Semi-Rigid Coax Debuted

Pasternack’s low PIM hand formable cable jumpers are made using a tin-filled braid that produces a hand-formable, solid outer conductor wall, making them perfect for installation into tight places. These low passive intermodulation (PIM) cable assemblies are available with two different coax diameters sizes which include 0.163” and 0.276”. RF low PIM connector options include 7/16 DIN, 4.1/9.5 mini-DIN, Type N, and SMA cable connectors.

The low passive intermod cable connector Tri-Metal plating, soldered connection point and precise coaxial cable construction produce reliable low PIM performance for the life of the assembly. These hand formable low PIM cable jumper assemblies boast outstanding passive intermodulation performance of -160 dBc and 1.25:1 VSWR. Between-series low PIM cable jumper configurations can be ordered with SMA, Type N, and 7/16 DIN connector combinations, while in-series formable cable jumpers using 4.1/9.5 Mini DIN connectors are also available.
